I made my second batch of MP tonight, and it seems like I'm not melting it enough. I'm doing it in short bursts, but there still seems to be spots in it of unmelted soap. I'm afraid of burning it though, any tips?

I have better luck when my container of M&P is kept in a bowl of hot water - seems to keep it from cooling too fast.

Have you tried a double boiler? If you don't have one, you can make one by using a 2-quart pot and a measuring cup for the soap.

I second the double boiler for MP, no burning and stays melted longer.

You need to check the temp your particular brand melts at. I know my daughter has a tough time with Stephenson, and cannot use it in her melters
